Multichannel ecommerce management tool ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces has added support for the new Amazon Mexico marketplace.

"The e-commerce market in Mexico grew 32 percent in 2014, and its double-digit growth is expected to continue to a 30 percent increase in 2015," said Scot Wingo, ChannelAdvisor executive chairman. "Through the development of its fulfillment network, Amazon has simplified the logistics of selling internationally. Amazon's extensive catalog and expertise in e-commerce will likely resonate well in Mexico, and we see this as a great opportunity for retailers and branded manufacturers to enter this market."

Retailers can ship Amazon Mexico orders from their own distribution center or use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) from an Amazon Fulfillment Center located in the country.

Amazon Mexico launched its physical goods store and marketplace on June 30th, with products in categories including consumer electronics, home and garden, sports, health and personal care, and home improvement.

In ChannelAdvisor's 2015 Online Retail Survey, U.S. respondents listed Latin America as the second most popular destination for international orders, behind only the U.K.
